Critic Reviews for Burn Notice: Season 3

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (4)

The show never tries to hang an episode on whether Michael can win a physical battle, because we know he'll win every one of those, but it's still a pleasure to see him do it so easily, even when it turns out to be non-essential to winning the day.

Despite the unevenness of the season, Burn Notice still understands and uses many of its strengths well. Unfortunately, the larger story arc frequently came off as muddled.

The cast is comfortable. The writers know what works. And the series is a hell of a lot of fun.

If you were concerned that Burn Notice was about to change gears you can rest easy. But if you're like me and hoped that season 3 was going to ramp up the show significantly you might be disappointed.

The show's designed not to dazzle you, but to grow on you -- and it does.

Those who enjoy seeing Michael in action, will be happy to know they can count on that aspect of the show to remain intact.
